"in order to"

He has to eat fifty eggs in one hour in order to win the bet.

“In order to” is like “for” or “permitted to”?

‘in order to’ means: he has a goal to win the bet, like: ‘pour’ in French

in order to = to

We use “in order to” rather than the simple “to” mostly in order to make sure that the meaning is clear. As Astamoore says, they are essentially interchangeable. The meaning is like “afin de” in French or “allo scopo di” in Italian.

Perfect thanks
